U.S. judge rules Mercedes owners diesel emissions lawsuit can proceed
Lawyer contends Daimler and Bosch 'tried to scam consumers'
https://www.autoblog.com/2019/02/04/us- ... s-lawsuit/
WASHINGTON — A federal judge allowed most claims against Daimler AG to move forward in a 2016 lawsuit by vehicle owners that claims the German automaker's Mercedes diesel vehicles used illegal software to emit excess emissions.

In a ruling late on Friday, Judge Jose Linares of U.S. District Court in New Jersey also said that claims against auto supplier Robert Bosch GmbH can proceed, rejecting a bid by the German companies to throw out the lawsuits. . . .
Daimler settles its emissions scandal lawsuit for nearly $3 billion
That's on top of the approximately $960 million fine the company paid in Europe last year.

ABG:
Criminal charges dropped against VW chairman in exchange for fine
He was accused of failing to alert investors to Dieselgate

https://www.autoblog.com/2020/08/20/vw- ... l-scandal/

Prosecutors in Stuttgart, Germany, have dropped a market manipulation probe against Volkswagen's chairman in exchange for a 1.5 million euros ($1.8 million) payment, parent company Porsche Automobil Holding SE said on Thursday.

Proceedings have been dropped against Chairman Hans Dieter Poetsch and Matthias Mueller, a former chief executive of Volkswagen, the Stuttgart prosecutor's office said. They were charged with failing to alert investors to VW's unfolding diesel emissions scandal in 2015. Other charges against Poetsch and current VW CEO Herbert Diess were dropped in May in exchange for a fine of 9 million euros ($10 million). . . .

I wonder if the company's also going to pay this fine for them.

The smartest thing the company did was reach a settlement now, before the trump sewage is flushed.

Dieselgate: Former VW CEO Martin Winterkorn charged with market manipulation
A German court has ruled that Winterkorn must stand trial on a second set of "dieselgate" charges. Earlier this month the former VW CEO and four others were charged over their alleged roles in the emissions scandal.

I'm sure all costs will be passed down to the consumer.
